What a GEM! I love love love Flor de Mayo. The Peruvian food is outstanding, the service is top-notch, and while it's by NO means upscale, it's so comfortable! That's what keeps me coming back! My recommendations: The Lomo Saltado with white rice (beef stir fry with onions, tomatoes, and fried potatoes). Order a side of Papa Arequipena and ask... More

My girlfriend for quite some time has been wanting to go to Flor de Mayo. She says that she was taken here a couple of times by her family and wanted to return again. After watching a show she wanted something to eat and I mentioned, would you like to go to Flor de Mayo? She said yes but that's... More

The food quality is very good here and the prices are very good, considering they give you very large portions. There were four of us and we all had variations of a chicken dish. By the time we were finished, everyone was full. Definitely recommend.

I love this place. Have been coming here for years. The drinks are great and the food is always on point. You might have to wait for a table, but it's well worth it. This place is always packed.

We love their roast chicken with green rice so much that we almost never order anything else! Nice selection of drinks. Sometimes a long line but definitely worth the wait.

We sometimes forget that the Chinese have travelled all over the world and have influenced the cultures not just of north America and Europe, but of many countries. Here we see how that Chinese Peruvian style is manifested in the food. The meals are solid and delicious. The seating is a little bit tight but acceptable. The menu is divided... More

I've tasted the Rotiserie Chicken w/ fried Rice and their Papa a la Arequipeña and it was delicious!! I've also tried their Lomo Saltado (Best I've ever had) and their Aguadito (very tasty). The Sangria has a good balance of fruit and wine so it has become my favorite. I've tried both Flor De Mayo restaurants in New York, on... More

This Chinese-Peruvian is a great value for the money. I've been going here for 20 years and have never had a bad meal. Truthfully, I've never tried any of the Chinese dishes, only the Peruvian. There is a wide selection of Latin foods, all the regulars, plus a nice group of Peruvian specialties. One of the best things here is... More

Lomo Salteado is all I have to say! It is the bomb and keeps me coming back! There maduros are great. The wait to get in at times is annoying and their drinks are VERY strong.

I truly love Flor de Mayo and I've gone there many times. However, it tends to be too crowded for my taste. If you're planning to go there for dinner, I would suggest to make it an early one to avoid a long wait.

Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain.
